NDN Collective is the most ambitious, systemic effort to empower Indigenous communities in the history of philanthropy.
Tyler Wade (He/Him), NDN Action Coordinator, is an enrolled member with The Pueblo of Laguna, located 45 miles west of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Tyler currently resides out of state, but travels back to New Mexico for traditional ceremonies. He has studied at various colleges throughout the Southwest, changing his major more than a few times in the journey towards finding true passion. Although he has yet to finish, Tyler has gained vast knowledge and networking skills, fighting alongside various POC struggles across Turtle Island- experience that Western models of higher education cannot offer. Tyler intends on utilizing his years of education, both in and outside of the classroom, to bring the frontline voice to the NDN Collective ecosystem.
